    Full Description

    Renée Levi is known for her flamboyant, fast, honest, and direct painting. Trained as an architect and visual artist, she often creates monumental, installation-like works, which are always adapted to the spatial context in which they are located. In this interview, Levi talks about the origins of her artistic intention, the place she has conquered in the art world, and her visual language that gradually evolves like a quest for freedom.

    On Words is a collection of interviews with leading contemporary women artists. In conversation with Julie Enckell Julliard, Federica Martini, and Sarah Burkhalter, they speak about the sources from which they draw inspiration, themes in their work, and their view of the world. The series brings together a wide range of viewpoints and adds a new narrative to polyphonic art history as told by those who actively shape it.

    Text in English and German.
